Electrical autoproduction refers to the production of electricity on site for one’s own use. The possibility of replacing oil- or gas-generated electricity with wind-generated, autoproduced electricity is examined in this paper. Efficient electrical autoproduction requires understanding of the local load. The electrical load examined here is that of Waterford Institute of Technology. The turbine selection is examined in terms of the characterised load, the displaced CO2, the amortisation of the invested capital and the local wind resources.
